Maemo 5 based Nokia N900 announced
Today Nokia has finally officially presented the rumoured Nokia N900. It runs the Linux-based Maemo 5 platform known from Internet Tablets (the 770, N800 and N810), but for the first time the N900 is not just a "tablet" but a fully functional smartphone with GSM radio and HSDPA connectivity (in addition to WiFi b/g, USB 2.0 Highspeed and Bluetooth 2.1 +EDR with A2DP and AVRCP). It is also the most powerful mobile device from Nokia released up to date, including the ARM Cortex-A8 (OMAP3430) processor @ 600 MHz with PowerVR SGX and OpenGL 2.0 (the same as used in the Omnia HD and the iPhone 3G S), 256 MB operating memory (and 768 MB of virtual memory, i.e. 1 GB in total), 32 GB storage memory and microSD card slot, 5 Megapixel (2576 x 1936) Carl Zeiss camera with 848 x 480 pixel / 25 fps video recording, FM transmitter, Assisted GPS receiver (with Nokia Maps), 3D accelerometer, 3.5 mm audio jack and TV Out, and 3.5" 800x480 pixel touch sensitive (resistive) display. The N900 also has a three row hardware QWERTY keyboard and a kick stand. It measures 110.9 x 59.8 x 18 mm and weighs 181 g.

Software features include: Maemo 5 platform, Mozilla powered web browser with Flash 9.4 and Ajax support, customizable "Panorama Desktop", multiwindow task switcher, Nokia Messaging with push and HTML support, Skype client, video playback (H.264, MPEG-4, XviD, WMV, Flash) at 25-30 fps, audio playback (MP3, AAC, AAC+, eAAC+, M4A, WAV, WMA), video recording (848 x 480 / 25 fps), and more.

The N900 will be demoed and more details about the device and the Maemo 5 platform will be presented next week at the Nokia World event in Stuttgart. N900 will start shipping in October at €500 before taxes.

Stay tuned for more information as it comes, as well as detailed review of this fantastic device as soon as we get it. New, separate website is also in preparation.

Further details: Press release, Nokia Conversations, Hands on video, Technical specifications, Product pages, Picture gallery, Maemo 5 developer resources, Offical Nokia Maemo site.

New Symbian Signed test criteria - your comments wanted
Symbian Foundation have been working on new Symbian Signed test criteria supposed to "guarantee the origin of the application and to ensure that the application is 'well-behaved' when installed onto the device" and they're asking for developers' input.

It's good that something's changing about Symbian Signed. Hopefully, the new criteria will be accompanied by a fix that will finally block the OS hack. Available and not fixed for over a year now, it allows for installing unsigned software, including de-signed commercial releases, and thus makes Symbian Signed actually of no use. One look at any warez site's download counters clearly shows that in its current (hacked) state Symbian Signed does NOT protect against anything, and actually only annoys developers (who still have to go through the certification, pay for it while not really getting the promised protection) and honest end users (who have to waste time on signing unsigned freeware using quite cumbersome Open Signed Online).

Blocking the OS hack for good is the only way to stimulate (now very poor) 3rd party software development. In order for more developers to get interested in creating valuable, commercial software for Symbian OS, Symbian Signed must finally guarantee that signed applications are REALLY protected against being un-signed in no time and freely installable on all hacked phones. Or else it only scares developers away involving procedures (and costs) that actually do not give anything in exchange.

Let's also hope that the Open Signed Online procedure (used mostly to sign unsigned freeware) also gets improved soon. Why not make it really online, i.e. directly on the phone, as part of the onboard Installer functionality? An attempt to install unsigned application could make the Installer (of course, after obtaining user's permition) contact the Open Signed server, submit required information (like phone IMEI, application details, etc.), get the certificate and sign it directly on the phone. Isn't this what we have 'always connected' devices for? Or is it too much to be desired at the end of the first decade of the 21st century? It would surely make Symbian Signed being considered a useful and friendly protection and not a hated restriction, and millions of people would lose reasons to hack their phones...
